Freedom Group- Crook Review



“Hide your assets” MLM is what Freedom Group specializes in. The company’s website does not give a physical address. Since it is run from Norway and Northern Cyprus, Freedom Group’s official Facebook profile can be found there.

Freedom Group describes itself as operating in Northern Cyprus, Dubai, and Spain, among other locations. The domain name for the Freedom Group’s website was privately registered in the beginning of this year.

According to the company’s official Facebook page, Freedom Group was launched on the same day. Eight co-founders make up Freedom Group’s leadership team:

Currently, Einar Steinshaug (Norway) is promoting the Better Globe campaign. (As part of the Better Globe movement, Dagfinn Rognerud (Norway) It’s Kjell Morten Brendoy (Norway) Tony Branch’s (Northern Cyprus) Paula Branch is the person responsible for this page (Northern Cyprus) Helen Camitz-Ryden (Sweden) Linda Josefine Neppelberg (Norway) and Jonas Camitz-Ryden (Germany) (Sweden). Their whereabouts are all that is known about the co-founders of Freedom Group.

I’ve done my best to fill in any gaps I could identify… It’s unknown if any of the current Freedom Group founders have experience with multilevel marketing. This may be because of my lack of fluency in the language. As for Einar Steinshaug and Dagfinn Rognerud, BehindMLM assessed Better Globe in August of that year.

A pyramid scheme based on Better Globe’s business model seems quite likely to us. An email was sent out on December 10th, 2021, with an update. He is best recognized for his work with World Games Inc., but Dagfinn Rognerud has also worked with Forever Living, besides being married to Kjell Morten Brendy, Linda Josefine Neppelberg has been associated in a number of other companies including Rain International, QubitTech, and Nu Skin Furthermore, Freedom Group looks to be a subsidiary of the International Partnership Program (IPP).

IPP’s marketing brochure explains; Innovative multinational organization that gives outstanding business opportunities, fantastic cooperation, solid professional support, and social networking…. Including sales and new construction, our North Cyprus property portfolio totals about £450 million. Besides renting and valuing properties, our consultants can also help with building and repair projects, as well as shipping and settlement logistics. Is this familiar?

Vision Group appears to be the reincarnation of IPP in 2019. Stephan Menzies MRICS, the current Chairman of Vision Group (previously IPP The International Partnership Program), was the original creator of the organization. As of this day, Freedom Group is still in existence. Rino Solberg, the creator of Better Globe, was a staunch supporter of IPP. I couldn’t tie Solberg to the Freedom Group in any meaningful way. It would be surprising if Solberg wasn’t an active co-founder of Freedom Group, given that two Better Globe top earners are in charge of the company. update finished Freedom Group’s MLM opportunity is described in detail in the following paragraphs. The Products of Freedom Group Marketers at Freedom Group specialize on Northern Cyprus homes.

Investors can learn about a variety of property “projects” on the company’s website. “Group tours” and “inspection visits” are also used by Freedom Group to promote its projects.

“We encourage you to come to sunny, pleasant North Cyprus for four days and five nights at no cost to meet with our reputable developers and learn about the property market and investment potential. We offer customized inspection visits through our selected developers to help you find the perfect property in North Cyprus, Spain, or Dubai.”

Freedom Group does not presently have homes in Spain or Dubai listed on its website. The Compensation Plan for Freedom Group compensates its employees through numerous goods that are complementary to the selling and renting of real estate properties. It is stated in the company’s compensation plan that an affiliate “cannot get commission on their first purchase of property” if they join the Freedom Group.

Freedom Group charges a £250 GBP fee for each property transaction. Sales and rents of real estate A unilevel compensation structure is used by Freedom Group to pay commissions on property sales and rents. When an affiliate recruits’ new members, they are placed at the head of their unilevel team (level 1), and each new member is placed right under them (level 2). Affiliates recruited by level 1 members are placed on the second level of their unilevel team. There is a possible endless number of layers of affiliates, therefore if any level 2 affiliates bring in new affiliates, they are placed on level 3.

In accordance with Freedom Group policy, the maximum number of unilevel commissions that can be paid out is 10. The following is the proportion of fees collected that is used to calculate commissions for real estate transactions: There is a 50/50 split between personal recruits and level 2 affiliates. Level 3 is 5 percent, while levels 4-8 are 2 percent, and levels 9-10 are one-tenth of one percent.

Please note that Freedom Group does not publish the total sum from which the above percentages are derived (they are not the property sale amount or rent paid by clients). Commissions for “a variety of products” Sales of “different products” result in “a one-time commission” for Freedom Group. As with the products, no additional information is provided. The Freedom Group: My Involvement Affiliate participation in the Freedom Group is completely free.

Freedom Group charges a fee of £350 GBP if an associate makes £2500 GBP in residual commissions (commissions across unilevel levels 2 to 10) annually.

Conclusion For consumers who are looking to hide their money in offshore assets, Freedom Group seems like an MLM organization. I don’t think Freedom Group is targeting the market of people who want to buy property in Northern Cyprus, which is a red flag jurisdiction for MLM due-diligence. To be honest, I wouldn’t be surprised if the “complimentary items” offered by Freedom Group were in fact meant to complement asset shielding. The secrecy around them may be because of this: The products in Group B are those that generate multiple sources of revenue for P2.

To learn more, speak with a representative of Freedom Management. Please contact a member of Management of Freedom LLC for more information on type B items and how you can earn more money in Freedom. It appears to be a dodgy transaction. In a suspected pyramid scam, the fact that the first two named founders are the top earners does nothing to bolster confidence. A look at Freedom Group’s offerings suggests they’re not geared toward retail customers.

Word-of-mouth and established marketers are more inclined to promote the product, and they’ll likely sign up as affiliates. It’s tough to sell property in hidey-hole jurisdictions, even if there is some retail activity going on. Take a moment, even if you’re not a member of Freedom Group, to consider how you’d go about marketing their properties – and to whom? According to the Freedom Group’s website, they offer free tours (presumably this only covers accommodation). That appears to be the most common marketing strategy. How can you compete as a marketer unless you live in Northern Cyprus? Freedom Group’s compensation model can operate if the majority of sales are made to retail consumers, if we disregard all of that. It’s a red flag under the FTC Act if a corporation isn’t providing product disclosures. As previously indicated, Northern Cyprus is a secluded jurisdiction, thus they probably don’t give a hoot.

In the end, secrecy and MLM are not compatible. Consider your surroundings before making a move. It has been brought to my attention by Malthusian in the comments below that there is a distinction between Cyprus and Northern Cyprus. My first evaluation had Freedom Group working in Northern Cyprus, but I’ve since changed it to reflect that. When it comes to MLM due diligence, Cyprus is a red flag jurisdiction. A lack of MLM or MLM-related securities fraud regulation by the corporation is a problem.

Northern Cyprus is even worse than the rest of the country. As a de facto state, the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus encompasses the island of Cyprus’s northeastern section. Northern Cyprus is only recognized by Turkey; all other countries believe it to be a part of the Republic of Cyprus. In Northern Cyprus, the Turkish military has a major presence. Since its establishment by the TRNC government, it has been described as an occupation force in several United Nations Security Council resolutions. The European Union as a whole and the international community consider it to be an occupying force. If you’re looking for a safe place to keep big sums of legitimately earned money, this probably isn’t it. That’s not Freedom Group’s target audience, so it’s not surprising.

Meta Utopia- Crook Review




A few days ago, we put out its review of Meta Utopia.

“Metaverse” MLM crypto Ponzi scheme that isn’t very interesting on its own.

As part of our research, we found a link between Nicholas Coppola and the man who started the Ponzi scheme.

Or rather, he did it through an Instagram story that has since been deleted:

Coppola wasn’t happy about being linked to Meta Utopia in public, it turns out. He only wants to hide the fact that he is a crypto-bro Ponzi scammer.

Today, Nicholas Coppola joins the DMCA Wall of Shame.

Over the past 24 hours, “Dincer Odabasi” from “Copyright Support” has sent us two emails. Nicholas Coppola’s emails were sent on his behalf.

Copyright Support says on its poorly made website that it will

Negative or damaging news that can be found on the Internet and in Google search results should be taken down for good.

In his first email, Odabasi tries to pull the old “right to be forgotten” scam.

“Dear Madam,

Because of the right to be forgotten and because of the privacy clause, we want the content to be blocked.

We tried to get in touch with the website that posted the content, but we didn’t hear back. So, we give you the content and ask you to turn it off.

As everyone knows, according to the first paragraph of Article 9 of Law No. 5651 on the Regulation of Broadcasts Made on the Internet and Combating Crimes Committed Through These Broadcasts, if they can’t get to it, they can send a warning to the hosting provider and ask that the content be taken down.

Again, the second paragraph of the same article says that “the content and/or hosting provider must respond to requests from people who say their personal rights have been violated by the content of an online broadcast within twenty-four hours at the latest.”

We want the case that was filed on our behalf to be taken care of. Because of the European right to be forgotten and the privacy of private life, we have the right to limit access to content.

Please note that we’re asking you to take down the content because we’ve tried to reach the owner but haven’t heard back. That’s why we want and need you to take it down.”

This is a form letter that con artists send out. I know that because Odabasi put the same notice to Amazon from another email about a different website and client (ruhroh GDPR fail) into the body of the email he sent me.

In any case, the “Right to be Forgotten” law in Europe is used by scammers to hide their pasts, no matter how good the lawmakers’ intentions may have been at first.

The Right to be Forgotten is not part of EU law, so we don’t recognise it. Also, it takes four days from the date of publication until a right-to-be-forgotten takedown notice is sent.

Odabasi went on to say that Turkish law had something to do with the US, which was not true.

Due to the Right to be Forgotten and the USA Legal Content Removal Request Pursuant to Law No. 5651, we can’t take down the content we told you about because it’s in the Constitution.

“The Right to be Forgotten and the USA Legal Content Removal Request” is not a thing, even if that sentence makes no sense. It’s not true at all.

Turkey passed Law No. 5651 in the year 2020. It only happens in Turkey and has nothing to do with the United States.

Odabasi sent another email a few hours after the first one. This time, he threatened to take action because of copyright issues.

“We want you to remove any content that reveals personal information about our representative.

If you don’t get rid of the news content, we will file a copyright claim with your hosting company, Google.

I’d like you to put the story away, please.


As our Policy says, we often use “third-party logos and images,” which is allowed by US copyright law through “fair use.”

We don’t need permission from the people who own the rights to the images we use in our MLM news and reviews. Period. 

The DMCA takedown process is being abused when fair use isn’t taken into account and a fake DMCA is filed. Not only will it not work, but the person who submitted it is lying.

Even though it’s clear that Copyright Support doesn’t care about the law, it’s still important to point out their hypocrisy.

Scam businesses like Copyright Support depend on the fact that the publisher or service provider they are after doesn’t know what they are doing.

Nicholas Coppola has publicly linked himself to Meta Utopia and is involved enough to be close to the Ponzi scheme’s founder, who has not yet been named.

It is not against any US law to publish this information with proof attached.

Update, July 2, 2022: Dincer Odabasi is now committing twice as much DMCA fraud as he was before.

Odabasi sent Google a “court order” on June 28 that says the same thing: “It’s against the law to search for scammers!” Stupid, but it also says this:

Based on the privacy clause of private life and the court document we will send you, we want the content to be taken down from publication and blocked from access.”

Odabasi is saying that a Turkish law is a “court document” that keeps scammers from telling the rest of the world. Oh dear.

Laetitude- Crook Review




Investors such as Laetitutde and Swapoo are circumspect on issues affecting investor wallets and active investments. 

According to a Latitude News report dated August 13th, You have gotten one or two emails from Swapoo in the past several days, which also affects our Laetitude members. 

Due to the continued strong relationship between Swapoo and Laetitude, we can guarantee that these changes will not affect your Laetitude accounts. Latitude will continue to operate as usual.   

The alterations made by Swapoo will have an effect on the wallet and the bots. However, we are aware that wherever there are obstacles and closed doors, new doors will emerge to provide opportunities for greater success. 

Swapoo is merely adjusting to the ever-changing regulatory environment and market situations.

The details of the e-mails sent are kept confidential. I have not encountered any examples in nature. 

Regarding “evolving regulatory landscapes,” Laetitude is a Ponzi scheme operated by Swapoo. 

David El Dib operates Laetitude from Dubai, the center of MLM fraud. Swapoo is run by Dave Martin, who is from the Philippines.El Dib and Martin have both established themselves on the BitClub Network. 

The investigation by the Department of Justice found BitClub Network to be a $722 million Ponzi scheme. The founders of BitClub Network were arrested in 2019. 

El Dib and Martin commit securities fraud and operate their own Ponzi scheme through Laetitude and Swapoo. The regulation of securities is not novel. For decades, every nation with a financial market has regulated securities fraud. 

The Ponzi fraud announced a remedy for lost Swapoo wallets in a follow-up “Laetitude News” post dated August 26;  

As you are likely aware, Laetitude no longer utilizes Swapoo for secure wallet services. As a result, we have recently implemented the ability to fund, purchase, and withdraw directly within Laetitude. 

In light of this, we would like to encourage you to login and withdraw your balance as soon as possible, and to continue withdrawing your balance as your compensation earnings increase. 

Laetitude lacks the two-factor authentication security offered by Swapoo, so it is essential that you protect your account with a formidable password. Again, what is occurring behind the scenes is kept secret. 

The only clue I could locate was a query posted two weeks ago on Swapoo’s most recent Instagram post. 

Swapoo has not published any new social media updates since July 30. This date also marked the last Facebook update posted by Laetitude. 

The lack of visitors to both Laetitude and Swapoo suggests that the Ponzi scheme is running out of money to pay investment withdrawals. 

The Philippine Securities and Exchange Commission is one of the most active securities regulators worldwide.

It is unclear whether they have anything to do with Swapoo’s issues.  

Whatever else is occurring, it is rare for wallets to be abruptly shut off and placed up as unsecured in-house assets. 

Keep up to date on any future developments.

GSPartners- Crook Review




GSPartners has dropped its claim of harassment against Chris Saunders. Saunders is the owner and operator of the YouTube channel Grit Grind Gold, which he uses to critique and report on the GSPartners Ponzi scheme. 

In late January 2021, Saunders was sued for harassment by owner Josip Heit and promoters Michael Dalcoe and Antonio (Tony) Euclides Menesis De Gouveia. 

Heit and the GSPartners Plaintiffs alleged that Sunders’ videos about the Ponzi scheme were defamatory. 

Additionally, Heit took offense when Saunders pointed out his position in Karatbars International’s collapsed KBC Ponzi scheme.  

GSB Gold Standard Corporation AG, Josip Heit, Michael Dalcoe, and Tony De Gouveia submitted a dismissal stipulation on July 29.  

Christopher Saunders, the defendant, executed a declaration in connection with the aforementioned case on July 29, 2022. 

Plaintiffs GSB Gold Standard Corporation AG, Josip Heit, Antonio Euclides Menesis De Gouveia, and Michael Dalcoe, by counsel and with the signature and agreement of counsel for Defendant Christopher Saunders, stipulate to the dismissal without prejudice of all claims in this matter pursuant to the Saunders’ Declaration.

The aforementioned stipulation from Saunders proves that he was granted permission. 

Mr. Ovidu Toma in relation to the Plaintiffs’ assertions and declarations. Since January 2020, Mr. Ovidu Toma has provided me with evidence of Mr. Harald Seiz’s alleged involvement in Karatbars’ wrongful conduct.   

“Ovidu Toma” refers to Ovidiu Toma, the former Chief Technology Officer of Karatbars International. 

Today, Toma serves as the CEO of CryptoData. Romania-based CryptoData sells encryption hardware. 

To return to Saunder’s assertion: I was aware, based on first-hand knowledge of facts and documents, that any alleged wrongdoing committed by Karatbars in relation to its Miami crypto bank and the issuance of KBC/KBC tokens was committed by Karatbars’ CEO, Mr. Harald Seiz, and that said wrongdoing was committed prior to any affiliation between Karatbars and GSB/Mr. Heit.

This is an odd concession to provide. Heit was the public face of Karatbars’ initial excursion into crypto-asset fraud. In an April 2019 interview, Seiz is referred to as a “major investor and board member” of Karatbars International. In Dubai, Karatbars was selling a “blockchain phone” at the time. When challenged about his remarks on the occasion, he responded, and I quote, ” You mentioned the KBC coin.

You stated that it is probable that it is one kilogram of gold. Is this truly a possibility? Heit reacted. Yes, of course it’s feasible. Nobody believes that many individuals perceive, at the appropriate moment, that they can join us.  

We currently have a market valuation of approximately $300 million as of the previous week or two weeks. And now there are about a billion of us.   

Is it not yet understood?  

And when the mainnet is implemented, which will occur very soon, within a few months we will have a market capitalization of over $200 billion. After months of Heit and Seiz promoting Karatbars’ KBC, the KBC Ponzi coin dropped 62% following the hype event on July 4, 2019. 

Heit, not Harald Seiz, was sent to address and explain the collapse to irate investors. KBC continued to leak throughout the subsequent months until it was eventually abandoned.

Heit had cashed out, left Karatbars, and launched his own Ponzi offshoot, GSPartners, before the end of 2019. The GSPartners Ponzi coins have performed no better than those of KBC.

G999 is supported by wash trading, which I believe is steadily depleting GSPartners’ second Ponzi scheme, LYS. G999 is being washed at approximately 0.002413. At $66.78, LYS continues to drain. 

GEUR was launched earlier this month as a result of the continuous failure of G999 and LYS to take off. GSPartners and Heit symbolize the euro-pegged GEUR currency. It is thought that GEUR was developed because GSPartners investors no longer desired to hold G999 and LYS. 

GEUR does not exist outside of GSPartners as of the publication date. GSPartners uses GEUR to support its most recent 300% ROI Ponzi scheme, metaverse certificates. 

In the event that GSPartners and Saunders achieved a settlement, it has not been made public. Other than wrongly saying that Heit was not involved in the Karatbars KBC scam, Saunders has not recanted any of his GSPartners-related statements.  

The court authorized the GSPartners plaintiff’s Stipulation of Dismissal on August 2nd. This concludes GSPartner’s harassment lawsuit against Saunders.
